Will try and make this quick and to the point. Costs are always important... no money tree in the backyard.Current AVR that I am looking to replace
Onkyo TX SR707 - Simply put, at the time when I purchased it was a fine AVR for my needs. Was not using in the current Dedicated TR. Still planning on using, but plan on using downstairs to run dual-zone. Mainly outside speakers.Size of room:
20x18New AVR will be running:
Unknown Center, but will be either: B&W HTM7 or HTM3s
SVS Sub: 10"
Rear surrounds - Klipsch CDT-5650Main listening styles / requirements:
85% Movies / 15% Music
Because we mainly watch movies, I prefer an AVR that basically has all the flashy sound codec's. 3D is NOT important, but I know now days it will be supported.
Audyssey has been used successfully with the current Onkyo, would like to have some type of room correction abilities - but I am willing to setup if needed.Toss - Up?:
Local AV Shop is suggesting Arcam AVR400. I have been searching high and low comparing specs on the Denon 4311, Onkyo 5009, etc, etc... hell even thinking a pre/pro might be the route.
Have thought about keeping the current Onkyo and adding in amps. Emotiva, Outlaw... list goes on. (this scenario would be ideal I suppose)
Basically looking for some direction as to what might be the best path. New AVR to push those 703's, etc to higher heights or stick with the current Onkyo and move into separate amp(s)?
